I'm passing on this one as well. I've got 2 cases (one of 06/07 and one of 07/08) I'll be breaking on Saturday in Toronto. Then hopefully working on getting the 07/08 base set finished. Will most likely be a solid release, but then again its hockey and timing is everything. Should sell real well for the next two weeks, but once the season is done...this may loose steam fast!

Maybe I missed something about this years Superlative, but isn't the whole set based around the Leafs? I was considering getting a box or 2 because I loved last years product. But seeing that turned me off on it.

Yeah...figured they're doing it this way and centering it around the Toronto Show. Then again..do a Red Wings and oh boy...I may need a whole new name for what happens when you exceed your credit cards bohicaing!

ITG may have screwed the pooch on this release. They would have been much better off IMO highlighting the Canadians Centennial for this set. Even if it is going to be debuted at the Toronto Expo.

Give it 2 months....then they'll do it. Seems they've been doing a fair amount of released lately, so they may be up for something else. I'll ask them at the show this weekend if they've got anything planned!

What was the base set? I opened a pack and only got game used and autographs, no base cards. Now the Ultimate set has commons, is that what you are referring to?
I got a question you can ask them. At the National someone mentioned that they were planning a new redemption program for expired redemption points. Could you ask if they are still planning to do that? I would appreciate that as I have a couple hundred I have been keeping just in case.

Hate to tell ya they already did. Whatcha think Bleu, Blanc, et Rouge was? A for the Leafs this time around, timing couldn't be better. Expo goers will devour this stuff.
